Kip, my chess teacher, came for the housewarming and still kicked my ass. But my opening was better. His game is fluid but he is still weak positionally and strategically. He beat me in tactics. But I am encouraged because I beat him in 1 out of the 5 games we played. I am sure I can beat him by the end of the year.
Below, the author contemplates the chess pieces carefully. Looking for a weakness to exploit.
Below Kip is keenly watching and calculating to ensure I dont make any inroads.
Here I am with wifey, victor and Irene.
Below: Aaaaahh.....What Do I do now?
I may miss Ndakaini if it is on 18th Sept because I have a wedding I cannot miss on that date. Damn!
I ran today. A hard tempo run. I have improved brothers. Oh yes, I have.
No break this week. Pushing and pushing. Working and working.
Below I try my hand at magic. I make a horrible mistake and the audience have a clue. Damn! I broke the first rule of magic: Rehearse first. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. Like an idiot, I did it before rehearsing. Bloody hell.
